Ausinet, as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other Australian RTO. You are encouraged to submit requests for credit from previous studies when enrolling to ensure that you are not enrolling in units you may not need to undertake. If you have completed units at other RTO and you think they may count towards the award requirements of the course you are enrolled in at Ausinet, submit an official copy of your results for the units you have undertaken. Credit transfer may fast-track your course.

Recognition of prior learning, also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a person's current skills and knowledge experience gained throughout life – regardless of how they have been acquired.

This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for people who are considering doing study. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification.

The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence. Please contact the office for an RPL kit.

Further training pathways from this qualification include but are not limited to Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas Electrical (if you only have EEHA). 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐" Just completed my HA refresher with Kev. Course was very well set out. Kev is very knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend using Ausinet when looking to upskill or maintain competencies" MITCH T.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐" The courses are set out very well and easy to follow. Definitely recommend Ausinet as the training provider for anyone looking to enrol." JOSEPH P.

* An average of 2 days full time intensive practical block, Options available for Flexible day and night classes depending on availability. Course completion duration may vary depending on students self-paced completion of the units. Check our Calendar for dates. This is a competency based training not an attendancy based training. Duration is subjective and varies with an individuals experience, intellect and tenacity.


It is easier to do the refresher course. We understand that you are experienced and competent but doing RPL requires you to submit lots of evidence. The trainer then goes through the evidence and will ask you for any shortcomings. This process could take a month and the cost of RPL is more than the cost of the refresher course. The refresher can be done online.
